  • Great journalists, Horrible app 1/5

    By Gmail App Stinks
    This is the worst performing app on my iPad. Inconsistent placement of content, inappropriate targeting of ads (I repeatedly get an PG&E ad pop up in another language that I dont understand and this just makes me hate CBS and PG&E), inappropriate placement of video imbedded in a written article (video or picture in a piece on completely a separate topic) make me think that CBS is actually not interested in maintaining a web presence. CBS journalists maybe great but I just deleted this app in frustration and probably wont restore it for a while. I get 100% of news on my iPad instead of TV. Will just go to the app of other news services.

  • Subtitles for the deaf 1/5

    By Ugh gamer whatever
    Every time I exit the app and return, I have to go through settings to turn the subtitles for the deaf back on. Annoying and unfair. I did not asked to be born deaf. Other app don’t have this problem.
  • How great it is! 5/5

    By Chicca do
    I am a CBS fan. I am thrilled to partake in all the formats and affiliates. Thanks for your efforts in helping make life bearable thru all the confusion. To life, liberty and the pursuit of information we rely on.
  • Perfect 5/5

    By AJS343

  • Bill 1/5

    I did not buy this app if somehow I have it And I am now or in future to pay fo for it cancel it
  • Where is dark mode? 1/5

    By shredrocket
    High intensity white on the app is too much!
  • Old news continues to fill the app. Keep it current. 3/5

    By bruja roja
    Old news. Week old stories.
  • News conferences are not breaking news 1/5

    By tiggerblues21
    Stop sending alerts every time a politician steps in front of the cameras. That is not news
  • Disorganized 3/5

    By Frustratedtwo
    I feel the reporting is good. However, I hate spending time scrolling through articles from previous dates and through articles that are repeated numerous times to find new material. My suggestions are to put new news or material at the top for each day and not to keep old material on for more than a few days or a week at the most. Post articles only once instead of multiple times. Our time is valuable, and we are smart enough to know that the volume of material doesn’t mean volume of reporting. I also use the BBC News app and find that I like the organization much better. Check it out to see the organization of material. When my time is limited, that is the app I use to get news.
  • The journalism is on point 5/5

    By Resolve Savage
    So, after all the crazy stuff with news media over the years I started looking for a true balance. Politically I am a moderate, a actual moderate and independent. The associated press is what I trust in addition to some pbs. I use CBS news as my daily "go to", non-opinionated, news.... not entertainment. No cutesie jokes, no silly bantering, no beliefs or stances, just news, like it was 30-40 years ago. They have some pretty great in-depth reports on reverb as well. This is better journalism than ABC, NBC, CNN, FOX or those other fringe networks like MSNBC and Blaze. Give it a shot. You'll agree
  • Forced update 3/5

    By _subscriber
    Not a good user experience when an app forces it customers to update the app before use. I should be able to update when it’s convenient.
  • Vlad is so annoying 1/5

    By bchfgshgkfuug
    Vlad is so annoying please fire him When there is a crisis like the Miami apartment building collapse, I would appreciate it if you could interview experts that actually speak English. Do you understand?
  • CBS 1/5

    By swybrants
    Terrible! Sound from 2 shows overlapping. Cannot fix
  • M 5/5

    By GG🙏🏼💪🏼🇺🇸❣️
  • What a gift! 5/5

    By Blanche7
    Several years ago in my last years as a high school teacher, I found this app. It proved to be door-opener for all of us. We were able to compare stories from different sources and share with each other our opinions. Now that I’m retired. My son, who was born without sight enjoy it just as much or more. The fact that it’s free makes it all possible. Thank you for the gift!
  • Review 1/5

    By Doctor Dots
    This app was great until the new update came today. Now, it is not accessible for a blind person. In the past, the livse section provided stations; now there are commercials. Please change it back to the way it was.
  • No news 1/5

    By Mr.TruckDriver9
    All they do is play commercials saw one news clip about the solar panels on the international space station and 20 minutes worth of commercials
  • Dumping the the 1/5

    By RancherRider
    If there is any real news here it is well hidden amidst conjecture and opinion.
  • CBS app 2/5

    By Cttransplant
    I do not care for the banner over the top of each story I read. It is in the way and a nuisance. I would rather read than have a banner telling me to watch the video. DISTRACTING!
  • It hasn’t worked for at least 1 month, through Paramount + also 1/5

    By mari.jones
    What happened? It doesn’t work any of our cell phones, computers or TVs. It’s the CBS NEWS 24/7. What happened? I give you 1 star, as when it worked it was the only app I used. Now I have nothing.
  • Margaret Brennan/FACE THE NATION 4/5

    By Hart105
    Margaret is a brilliant journalist and Foreign Policy analyst, and brings a “fresh air” or “truth air” to her broadcasts. However, I have one criticism: on every show, with every guest she overtalks her guests, forcibly talking over them, and causing me to miss her point! And more importantly the guest’s! She is bright, obviously, and well prepared. I’m not sure what the cure is, but there has to be one better than replaying the question barrage several times. She does not do this with her journalist/colleagues! In this half of the show, everyone has time for their voice to be heard! Watch a dozen “first halves” and watch closely. No one deserves this hammering! And the viewer is the loser! She is not on the debate stage, but if it were, would she be called on the rules!! It’s a great show, it’s in great (brain), but rudeness needs to go!! Laurie Hart 52/547-7333
  • No favorites list 3/5

    By Jeanne4ever
    Still waiting for a favorites list. It is inconvenient to search for programs EVERY time I watch the app
  • No Norah 1/5

    By WillBCO
    Wanted to see the evening news. Nowhere to be found.
  • I want a CBSN Headline shortcut 5/5

    By JaegerBob
    Truley. This is such a great news source and low key in tone - thank goodness. Sometimes you just want the news. Now I have two parts of this app that I use a good deal. Let’s take “Headlines”. I want a shortcut on my ipad that launches the app AND that channel. Quick and easy. Let’s have the ability to put any of your channels as a shortcut on our home pages!
  • Excellent 5/5

    By Lee Matile
  • CBS news and paramount+ 1/5

    By go bite someone
    I want to cancel
  • Video links do not work 3/5

    By Oldguey
    The content that does work is CBS excellent. The video links do not connect so that news is missed. Also, some stories run for days even weeks. Apparently just filler.
  • 60 minutes 1/5

    By Batlise
    Why do I get notifications about 60 Minutes - 30+ MINUTES AFTER IT HAS STARTED????? WHAT GOOD DOES THAT DO ME?
  • CBS News not intuitive 1/5

    By 11-1943
    Very difficult to navigate needs a search function
  • CBS News I love. The app no so much 2/5

    By cocsukk
    Weird layout, hard to look for stories of interest. Hardly ever use it because it’s so frustrating.
  • Trump, Donald 2/5

    By 70sick of
    I am sick of news companies writing almost daily articles about Donald Trump. You are the ones giving a Narcissistic, sociopath attention. He gains influence because you focus on. Please let him be an expresident. Let him fade away. Sick of demogods.
  • Ad advertising new 2018 Tahoe etc 1/5

    By Historicaltrekker
    The ad is pure b s to get you into the site for 2021 vehicles.
  • Where's the Eye Opener? 1/5

    By AKurmudgeon
    if i can't easily find it here, i might as well stay in my browser.
  • You get nothing 1/5

    By sichofyou
    You are garbage
  • Unjust 1/5

    By mazen hamad
    Doesn’t tell the true story of the Palestinian and Israeli conflict.
  • No evening news! 1/5

    By rsrw1002-3
    No way to see full episodes of the evening news program!!!
  • This update is SAD! 1/5

    By so sad right now
    Unfortunately, I have had to edit my previous glowing review to rant against the CBS News app update. What on this green earth happened? The previous app was great! Now I can’t exit out of the livestream without shutting the whole app down, I cannot go back to previously streamed pieces by timeline, and it’s really hard to find articles now. Whose idea was this? When something isn’t broken, you should heed that age old advice and DON’T FIX IT! But please do fix this app now as it’s pretty much unusable. UPDATE: There is a glitch now where the shows cannot be viewed in full screen mode on the iPad. It’s just black after the first few minutes. To view one of the shows, you have to view it minimized, which is a smaller view than your mobile phone. Glitchy glitchy!

  • Too buggy 2/5

    By Cholera 1
    The several weeks when attempting to watch Sunday Morning or any other programs the commercials will play without incident, but after the first set the app crashes. Not a good look when advertisements work without a hitch yet one cannot access the content. Do better.
  • App programming 1/5

    By FelipeMazz
    The news is a one sided propaganda. No true journalism
  • 60 minutes 1/5

    By inbiased
    The segment on The Pandemic failed to mention Trump stopped travel from China on Jan 31st 2020 and was criticized for doing so. I think 60 mins should stop rewriting history. One of his critics was our current president and Nancy Pelosi who told the people of San Francisco to go downtown and enjoy Chinese New Year. This does it for me. I will stop watching a show I’ve enjoyed for many years. Too bad it is no longer unbiased reporting. Nancy Cappiello
  • No Search Feature?!? 1/5

    By nickstan55
    I wanted to find the story about cicadas, but I couldn’t find it anywhere. Then I tried to find the search feature which is part of every app created since the Middle Ages! I could not find a search feature anywhere. What kind of Neanderthals work in CBS IT? Incredible!
  • Check Your Spelling 3/5

    By JBK 04
    Several headlines had had misspelled words. Gudiance? CBS, do better.
  • Sports information 1/5

    No baseball scores
  • Notifications 3/5

    By MNEMONIC6611
    App isn’t bad at all. Allows for PIP with good picture quality. Way too many notifications. I can rationalize why all the notifications and it doesn’t make it right.
